Following a post on the Facebook page Friends of Maddox, mourners came together today to create an makeshift memorial to the Reynoldsville teen to who died yesterday after a long battle with cancer.
Using battery operated tea lights and strings of Christmas lights, the tables inside the pavilion were illuminated. A sign on one bench read, “In memory of Maddox Hyde.”
The event was scheduled for 5 p.m., but even an hour later cars could be seen pulling up to the park as people placed more lights on the table.
The complete obituary for Maddox Hyde can now be seen at the Snyder-d’Argy Funeral Home web site.
